Mission Team

It’s time to get ready for school at Reelfoot Rural Ministries! During the month of July, Aldersgate will be collecting school supplies to be distributed to low-income families during the months of July and August. We have faithfully supported this ministry year after year, and you are encouraged once again to participate by donating needed items. These items need to be brought to the church as soon as
possible so they can be delivered to Reelfoot before their distribution dates. This year the school supplies distribution will take place on Mondays only — July 22, July 29, August 5 and August 12.  Please see below for the supply list:

  • Clear view notebook binders (1.5, 2, & 3 inch
    Composition Notebook (black & white speckled)
